OR Freebies!

This week we learned all about AR and OR. You can read all about our Pirate Day here

Yesterday we met our second visitor this week. Mrs. SmORe-gan! She is quite the hoot let me tell ya'. 

I used Krista's clipart to draw her sweet lil' self! 

She told us all about the sound OR makes, helped us sort words, and told us what we would be doing throughout the day to learn more about OR. 

After making a list of words with OR, the kiddos created their own s'mores and wrote word from the board as well as a sentence on their s'more. 

The top one melts my heart y'all. I love me some of my Lord! With or without a capital letter! #propernounsaretrickystuff

We also used Oreos to build OR words and sentences!

Sorted words in our notebooks....

...and their favorite activity, Write the Room. 
This is very similar to the Treasure Hunt activity we did earlier this week. The kiddos walked to each card and answered the question on the card. There were rhyming words, missing letters, correct spelling, and more included on the cards

Total squirrel moment, but I forgot to tell you about our class graph we made on Pirate Day. The kiddos voted for their favorite activity from the day. 

You can find all the activities above here for free! 

Of course Walk the Plank was their favorite. It was a blast! The kiddos were so funny pretending that the boat was rocking back and forth in a storm! 

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs! Stop by to see what others are up to!


  1. Lovely to meet you via DoodleBugs Five for Friday linky. We don't have smores in England but we do have oreos so I certainly think I might pinch that idea - rather scrumptious learning :-) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  2. Thanks so much for the freebies. My kids will love these!

  3. Glad "Walk the Plank" was their favorite! I have it on my plans for Thursday!

  4. Can I come eat oreos with y'all??!!! Please!!!

  5. Michelle- I just wanted to say thank you for you FUN ideas and sharing such wonderful activities. I love them all!
